(Kinda Solved) Firefox 33.0 passwords not available

Post by russ553 »

Just did the update to Firefox 33.0 that came out today and now cannot see any of my passwords and my password manager, Secure Passwords, does not work.

I have changed the Master Password, which worked last time I updated Firefox and lost my password ability, but it isn't working this time.

Where does Firefox store my passwords and how do I fix this dang thing?

I normally use a master password and the password manager, therefore I don't remember the passwords.

Help!!

To determine where your Firefox passwords are stored (the path is different for every user):

Code: Select all

locate key3.db
locate logins.json
On my computer, there is no logins.json, but then I don't use Firefox's password feature.

You might have more success asking on the Firefox forum.

Unable to find anything about fixing this problem, so I reverted back to Firefox 28 and locked it so it would not be updated. All working well again.

I would bet that was the problem as I have Remember Passwords 1.1 installed in extensions.

I have reverted however and am going to keep it that way for awhile, at least until the burn dies down. :evil:
